Top 10 Characters that Should Be Playable in Super Smash Bros.

The iconic Nintendo fighting game series Super Smash Bros. has been around for over two decades and has seen its playable character roster increase from only 12 characters to over 80 characters when counting DLC. And yet, there are many more characters that deserve a chance to fight.

This list is for the fighters you would most like to see added in future Super Smash Bros. installments or DLC releases. Vote for the characters you most want to fight with or against, or add a most wanted character if it's not already in the list.
The Top Ten
1 Krystal

I'd like to see Krystal replace Wolf and make Wolf an alternate costume for Fox. Star Fox only deserves three spots on the roster, and using her staff and her grenades, Krystal needs one of them. It'd also add more females to the game, which we need at the moment.

More women, please. Fox, Falco, and Wolf have almost the exact same set of moves. Krystal would be new and different. Please, Nintendo, think of the ladies!

She would have been another girl and a Star Fox representative that wasn't a clone of Fox. She would have felt really unique with staff-based melee and magic projectiles.

2 Shadow Shadow the Hedgehog is a character who appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series released by Sega. He is an artificially created black and red hedgehog whose hover shoes propel him at extreme speeds that rival those of Sonic.

Shadow is perfect for this series. He has similar speed to Sonic and can teleport. He has lots of helpful moves, and he could use moves like Chaos Spear.

I even thought up a final smash. It's called Chaos Control. Time freezes, and nobody can move during it. You have two choices: You can beat them up while time is frozen with a 48% K.O. chance, or you can shoot a huge laser of death which unfreezes time but has a 95% K.O. chance.

This hedgehog, who seems to have his destiny intertwined with Sonic's, is adept at using the "chaos" force and claims to be the "ultimate life form." His powers are extraordinary, and the applications of them are vast. He can warp space and time, create rifts, form weapons, and even teleport things of intense mass to other parts of the planet.

3 Waluigi Waluigi is a lanky self-centered, brusque young lad as he is considered evil and the main rival of Luigi. Waluigi is shown causing local havoc in most games he appears in alongside his partner Wario. Waluigi is not instinctively evil or the antagonist (not counting DDR), as a matter of fact, he shows... read more

Here's my idea for his Special Moves and Final Smash if he were playable in Smash.

Neutral Special: Pinball Throw - Waluigi throws a metallic pinball similar to how Wario throws one in the Pinball Zone from Wario Land 4.

Side Special: Pinball Bumper - Waluigi summons a bumper from Waluigi Pinball (Mario Kart DS) to push opponents away and block projectiles. This could work like Palutena's Reflect Barrier.

Up Special: Pinball Flipper - Waluigi jumps off from a moving flipper similar to Sonic's Spring Jump and Mega Man's Rush Coil. The flipper can shock people that try to jump on it, which references how the flippers act in Waluigi Pinball (Mario Kart DS).

Down Special: Sparky Sticker - Waluigi takes out a Sparky Sticker from Mario Party 4 and puts it on the ground. Anyone that steps on it will get electrically shocked by an Amp.

Final Smash: Waluigi Pinball - Waluigi traps opponents inside a pinball machine where they're bounced off pinball bumpers and attacked by giant pinballs. This ends with everyone falling out of the pinball machine and Waluigi laughing at them. For a small detail, let's have the pinball machine be a reference to Pinball (NES).

4 Miles "Tails" Prower

Honestly, it's weird seeing Sonic in the game while Tails isn't. I don't understand why people want Shadow more. Tails could be a brawler or gunner, which is great, and he's one of the best characters in the Sonic series.

Let's be real. Sonic needs more friends to fight with him in Smash, and what better way to start than with Tails? Plus, who doesn't like this sweet, loyal fox-cub?

Come on! Out of all the Sonic characters, you pick Tails?! Seriously, Shadow, Knuckles, Silver, Eggman, heck, even Amy Rose would be better choices. Tails is a weakling and should never be in Smash.

5 Toad Toad, known in Japan as Kinopio, is a major character in the Mario Bros. franchise. He assists Princess Peach in the Mushroom Kingdom and will do whatever it takes to help her. He first appeared in the classic game, Super Mario Bros. after being kidnapped by Bowser and his minions. Since then he has... read more

I love Toad, and I have the perfect moveset for him. His normal special will be a mushroom that makes him bigger. His left and right specials will be launching attacks similar to Luigi's, but for Toad, he will have a mushroom charge meter ranging from a single mushroom to a golden mushroom. The golden mushroom will be the strongest and launch the victim even further.

His down special will be a turnip. His up special will be the propeller hat, allowing him to fly up. His final smash will be a giant POW block that launches people off the screen. If anyone has any other ideas, please share them.

6 Crash Bandicoot Crash Bandicoot is a video game franchise of platform video games. The series, originally exclusive to the Sony PlayStation, was created by Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin during their tenure at Naughty Dog for Sony Computer Entertainment.

Not only would Crash be awesome as a third-party character, but he's also part of a lot of people's childhoods! I'm sure everyone would LOVE playing as him. Maybe his final smash would be all the monsters from the series coming at you and running you off the screen from all directions.

One of his alternative skins should be the silver-furred Crash, which is the skin for the second player in his games.

I haven't played many of his games, but he should be in Smash.

Hey, we got Banjo, why not Crash too?

7 Rayman Rayman is the main protagonist and title character of the Rayman series created by Ubisoft game designer Michel Ancel.

Rayman Legends has a reference to Nintendo, and he is seen on Nintendo platforms. He has a chance.

Rayman is just a very cool fighter in his own game, and I would love to play as him in Smash.

Wonder what his moveset would be?

8 Koopa Troopa Koopa Troopas, or just simply Koopas, known in Japan as Nokonoko, are a fictional race of turtle-like creatures from the Mario series, as well as its sister Yoshi series. They most often appear as common ground enemies.

Darth Vader? A real-life NFL player? SpongeBob? Toy Story? Cartoon Network characters? This is SUPER SMASH BROS., for God's sake! Haven't any of you ever even played a Smash Bros. game? Smash Bros. consists of only Nintendo characters!

I love Darth Vader and Toy Story, but they're not Nintendo franchises! Vote for actual Nintendo characters instead of filling this list with characters who neither belong in nor ever will be in Smash Bros. Characters like the Koopa Troopa should be in Smash. Koopa Troopa has earned it. He is a classic Nintendo character and could spin back and forth on the stage in his shell like Bowser does in Smash Wii U!

9 Paper Mario

The number of interesting moves he could do would make him a good addition, with his hammer being the obvious choice. The other options are limitless since he's made of paper. He should be there instead of Doctor Mario, especially since the Paper Mario games were much better and are still ongoing. Seems a no-brainer.

He should be good as an alternate Mario who lacks his bad moves like F.L.U.D.D. and replaces them with ground pound.

As long as he isn't a Mario clone.

10 Scorpion Scorpion is a recurring player character and occasional boss character from the Mortal Kombat fighting game franchise created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. His debut is in the first Mortal Kombat game.

This would be a really cool character to play as in this game.

The Contenders
11 Bomberman

Think about it. Joining a Smash Bros. game and blowing everyone out of the battlefield! Bomberman would be a very good addition to the series. Enough said.

People have always pictured Bomberman in Super Smash. He would be an amazing addition to the Smash series! He would blow the competition away.

It's sad he became a special event since no one plays with items, meaning no one sees this fantastic character.

12 Darth Vader Darth Vader is a Star Wars character and the main antagonist of the first three original Star Wars films and the main protagonist of the Star Wars prequel trilogy under his original name Anakin Skywalker. He had been trained as a Jedi but defected to the Sith lord and Galactic Chancellor Palpatine... read more

Just imagine your character getting stabbed by a lightsaber.

13 Goku Son Goku (Kakarrot) is the main protagonist in Dragon Ball franchise created by Akira Toriyama in 1984. He has many abilities like, super strength, utilization of ki, flight, teleportation, super speed, enhanced reflexes, and Super Saiyan transformation that increase strength, speed, and durability... read more

He made it to a computer game called Super Smash Flash 2. Try that game. It's similar to Super Smash Bros. Brawl!

Don't you realize, Goku, you'd be the most overpowered character anyway?

Goku is the best, and no one is telling me otherwise!

14 Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

This would be so much fun. Just imagine all the possible moves he could use. He could wield a reef blower, a spatula, a jellyfish net, Mermaid Man's belt, and bubbles.

He could make Gary attack his enemies!

I really like SpongeBob and wish he were in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

15 Master Chief Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, more commonly known as the Master Chief, is a SPARTAN-II commando of the UNSC Naval Special Warfare Command. He is the protagonist and main character in both the Halo trilogy and Reclaimer Saga.

The original mascot for Microsoft. He is a better representative for Xbox than Banjo Kazooie. I really like Banjo Kazooie, but Master Chief is more of a Microsoft character than Banjo Kazooie.

Master Chief, like Snake, is a human who has a lot of weapons and would be nice in Smash.

Really an Xbox character, but it would be sick if he were in the game.

16 Bandana Dee

Please add him. Sakurai, give him a chance. Mighty spear. Cool bandana. Cute, strong. Another cool Kirby character to add to the game. My honest favorite character out of all the characters in the Kirby game franchise.

17 Tracer (Overwatch) Tracer is a playable character appearing in the 2016 video game Overwatch, a first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment.

Cool. More third-party characters! Tracer would probably be an interesting addition to the roster, even though I haven't played Overwatch myself.

Literal goddess that deserves to be worshipped 24/7.

18 Shovel Knight

It pains me that Shovel Knight is an assist trophy and not a character in Smash.

An assist trophy, but I would like it if he were a playable character.

Who wouldn't want such an amazing character in Smash?

19 Rouge the Bat
20 Birdo Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in... read more

Birdo should be higher! We need more Mario spots. Nobody knows Earthbound, Kid Icarus, or any of these franchises as much as Mario. I'm sure everyone knows Birdo because everyone knows Waluigi when Birdo was in the Mario cartoon before Daisy came.

First: Paper Mario. Second: Waluigi. Third: Toad. Fourth: Birdo. Fifth: Geno! That's my top five Mario characters I want in Super Smash Bros.

I love Birdo. Gee, she'll make a great addition to a fighting game, shooting eggs out of her nose like cachaw or rangatangtang.

21 Amy Rose Amy Rose is a fictional character in SEGA's Sonic the Hedgehog series. She is a pink anthropomorphic hedgehog with a cheerful, competitive personality, and is infatuated with the series' main character, Sonic. She serves as the first playable female character in the series.

I'm going to be honest: This girl, she's annoying as heck. But I could see her being in the game.

I think she was going to be in it, but if she was, she was cut by Peach.

She could fit in perfectly with this 12-so-called move set.

22 Kumatora
23 Arle Nadja
24 Terra Branford Terra Branford, known as Tina Branford in Japanese media, is a character in the Final Fantasy series of role-playing video games published by Square Enix.
25 Blaziken Blaziken, known in Japan as Bashāmo, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Yes. Screw Lucario, Blaziken's the real deal.
